    Hi Misbrew, I have some knowledge on the connex, Several things could be causing this, so I need some info from you. First, what kind of work has been done to it? What is your skill level on trouble shooting? Are you comfortable taking the covers off the radio?

    Get back to me when you can I am pretty sure we can work this one out.
    Thanks for using fixya and Happy New Year.
    Tom

How do i set my galaxy dx 88 hl so the talkback is on all the time


turn the talkback knob to the right and push it in to engage talkback.when you get the volume you want leave it alone .Now key the mic.You will probably hear a squeal coming from the speaker.Now turn the volume down on the talkback knob until the squeal goes away.If you run your RF gain wide open it may squeal also.

My radio squeals with echo when my amps on


adjust your talkback to just open then set your echo to where you want it. Now turn your amp on and re-adjust both the talkback and the echo . If you have a speaker nearby the radio may be feeding back through it so move it away from your radio . Now start talking with the mic and adjust your echo because you should be able to hear yourself talk through your talkback.

When ever i dead key the mic on med rf power i get a humming or bumble bee sound through my talkback same thing on high rf power i changed the coax it helped it for low rf power and tried new mic but had...


Thats because your Rf is powerful on high settings..try taping a AM radio "ferrite bar" to your coax in the back of radio for "RF filtering". Keep your power supply 15 inches away from radio. I recommend unhooking talkback on radios (it always causes feedback). But make sure speaker is good distance from the radio. I'd say 10 feet or so, behind radio. Change external speakers or add one with a long cord.

I have an echo mic on my 29. I can't use mic gain at all without it squeeling. Can barely here my talk back in this position.


re do the talkback. take out the resistor for the talkback. and put in the talkback that is a little outta phase and you won't get that constant feed back. make sure all the modulation limiters are not cut also.. A good shop would tune up and talk back a radio correctly for $10-$15 dollars. any more and they are ripping you off. I make sure my customers radios do not squeal before giving it back. that means i may have to try different values for the talk back to be right. so the customer can have the mic gain 100 % and it be ok...then the microphone mic adjustment can be set also.. let me know if you need help

I have a Connex 4600 Turbo mounted in the headliner of a W900L Kenworth using Wilson 2000 twin antennas and a RK56 mic. When trying to use the "talk-back" feature all I hear is constant...


Strange. You shouldn't have a squealing problem with an RK56 noise canceling mic.

Unfortunately there is no way to change the volume of the talkback. Its too loud. The only solution is to turn the mic gain down.

The only reason you need to have talkback on is to check your audio. Make sure the echo is good and what not. After that you really don't need it on. So turn down the mic gain, then check the echo, then turn off the Talkback and turn the gain back up.

The squeal is feedback from the talkback being to loud and being heard by the mic. So the only way to solve it is to lower the volume of the talkback, (Which is not possible in this radio) lowering the mic gain(which lowers your audio level) or turning it off.

I have a dx98vhp and it sqeels* when i key up when the talkback is on. I've tried adjusting the power and i can't figure it out. Thanks


the talkback is too loud. there is no way to adjust the talkback volume on this radio. Talkback is really just so you can check how your audio sounds and your echo. Once it set, there is really no need to have it on.

Turning down the gain on your mic will stop the squeal.

the squeal is cause by feed back from audio from the talk back being heard from the mic.

Want to get talkback in a cobra 29


When you key up the mic ungrounds the speaker so you don't hear anything through it, so to get talkback you're putting a 100 ohm 1, or 2 watt resistor between the switched side of the speaker and ground, now when unkeyed the mic grounds the speaker as usual, but when you key the resistor allows a bit of audio from the audio amplifier, not decoded RF, to still get through. I think the pa/ext spkr. jacks are a convenient place to connect it. You may decide to control talkback by running the circut thru a switch like brite / dim switch . Want less talkback, use more resistance, 150 ohm . Too much talkback can become feedback . I hope this helps, J
